SID: So a nine-year-old Indian boy in India hears this teaching from Steve and totally moves like someone in the Book of Acts would move that was a believer. Give me just a few nuggets that this young nine-year-old grabbed hold of that caused him to be normal, normal as defined by the Bible, not normal as defined by tradition and religion.

 

STEVE: For one thing, he would have learned that what we expect is what we see and the more we see, the more we expect, so it is a positive spiral. And he would have also heard what I shared earlier that whatever we release is what gets released from Heaven, which is what Jesus told Peter in Matthew 16:19 in this whole thing of God wanting to release the Kingdom through us. He also would have heard about the delight of God. This is such a key for me. Let me tell you briefly. I was doing a healing conference in Seoul, Korea and a mother brought her 20-year-old son to me. He came over to me. He had rheumatoid arthritis. His knees were all swelled up. So I knelt down to pray for him, and as I started to pray for him I could feel things moving around. Nobody noticed me because of all that was going on in the room. But for me, it was as if the room became silent, and I heard the Father say to me, “You really love doing this, don’t you?” I said, “Yes, Papa, I do.” And he said to me, “Me, too.” And at that moment, I just had this a-ha, he delights in healing and he delights in me, Sid, when I’m healing. He made me to pray for the sick as he made every believer and when I’m doing it I enter into his delight. Can I tell you a story, also in India, how that was released and changed a region. I took a team, you know, we head up this thing called Impact Nations, and I took a team on a journey of compassion to northern India two years ago. I had been to India many times. We went into the hardest region in India, in the Punjab. On the first day, we did a mobile medical clinic, which we do. I believe the Kingdom touches every part of life. And we were going along just fine for a couple of hours and then a family brought their paralyzed mother. They carried her in to get medicine. While she was waiting our prayer team prayed for her and she was instantly healed. What I want you to know is out of that one healing, suddenly a town of 8000, we just turned and we prayed for person after person, after person until it was dark, got up to preach and they were on the roof, on the walls, they were everywhere. And out of that one journey of compassion in that area of the Punjab, 1000 new churches were planted.

 

SID: This is not an exception. Wherever you go this is happening. But that’s India. What about some place like here, the United States? Does the Word work as good here as it does in India?

 

STEVE: Absolutely, Sid. I’ve watched in Bristol, Connecticut, when I taught a team and we went out to a housing project, and in the first 30 minutes, a woman with a blind [eye] opened. Another woman who had been in bed for three months and her husband found us and said, “Come pray.” And she was doing jumping jacks. A man who had been off on disability because he had a frozen arm that wouldn’t work, completely healed.

 

SID: But the thing that’s so amazing to me, he could tell me all these things that he does, but he doesn’t even do it much himself. He lets everyone else do it that’s never done it before to prove the power of the Word. Speaking of the power of the Word, this illustrates it better than anything I’ve ever heard of. You were in the former Soviet Union and your translator was Russian, a really nice Russian atheist, doesn’t believe a thing, just a professional doing her job, and how could you tell her to pray for someone?

 

STEVE: The Russian government actually paid for auditoriums for me and they provided this interpreter, this translator. Her name was Paulina. I would preach and she would start to translate for me.

 

Woman: [Russian]

 

STEVE: Then she’d turn and whisper and she’d say, “But Steve, you know I don’t believe.” I said, “It doesn’t matter. You’re doing great. Keep going.” And this was what was always going on. One day I came into an auditorium, a large auditorium. God was healing and the Lord spoke to me and said, “Go to the back.” There were bleachers in the back. I said, “Paulina, come, let’s go.” We went to the back and there was a woman who had very advanced liver disease. She was jaundiced, just yellow, and her stomach was very extended. I said, “Paulina, would you just put your hand on her and I want you to say this.”

 

Man: In the name of Jesus, I command the spirit to leave this woman and never come back.

 

STEVE: And she said, “But Steve, you know I don’t believe.” I said, “It doesn’t matter.”

 

Woman: “In the name of Jesus, I command the spirit of disease to leave this woman and never return.”

 

STEVE: And the woman suddenly shouted out, “Fire! Fire! I’m on fire!” And like that, her descended stomach when shoo! And her flesh was pink. This is what I see all the time. The power is in the Gospel. Romans 1:16: “The Gospel is the power of God unto salvation.

 

SID: I’ll tell you what, when we come back, I’m going to have Steve pray for you when we come back.
